Back in February, I was seeing a nutritionist who recommended I have a routine blood test. When I got the results back I was surprised to see that my iron levels were quite high. I called my Mom simply to see if she has ever had any issues with her iron – which she hasn’t. Right away she was on the internet diagnosing me. After scouring the internet, she made an urgent plea for me to go to my doctor. She was so unsettled because of everything she came across.
The internet can be a wonderful thing but when it comes to your health it is always best to see your doctor or mental health professional. This week we are going to help you understand some of the most common mental health diagnoses because if you search the internet to learn about anxiety, you could end up like my Mom and create even more!
